The folk horror-obsessed fivesome have re-emerged from their mulchy catacombs armed with dozens of freshly-whittled riffs. Black Harvest, the sequel to Woodland Rites, is a more colorful, widescreen reimagining of the band's sound - Dawn of the Dead to it's predecessor's Night of the Living. Recorded at Giant Wafer Studios in rural mid-Wales over the course of two weeks with longtime producer Wayne Adams (Petbrick, Big Lad), it's a more expansive and textured record than anything the band have done before, boasting a cinematic quality and more attention to detail. All samples were sourced from the local countryside and from instruments found in the studio, including the haunting opening vocal of 'The Harrowing' which was recorded on a whim after the band broke into the local church (you can hear the organ creaking in the background). The album was recorded in late autumn, and that atmosphere seeped into the music, which is redolent of mists, falling leaves, and the crumbling glory of the Magnificent Seven cemeteries of London, the city the band call home. The album also soaks in new sonics beyond the 'Black Sabbath meets Brian May' blueprint of what went before. 'The Harrowing' takes the band's tradition of instrumental opening.
